The GEC ESTRO Handbook of Brachytherapy: Radiation Protection in Brachytherapy (2nd edition - 2014)

Panagiotis Papagiannis , Jack Venselaar

This chapter aims to summarize technical and procedural information to aid the process of optimization of protection in brachytherapy,

The GEC ESTRO Handbook of Brachytherapy: Brachytherapy Physics: Sources and Dosimetry (2nd edition - 2014)

Jack Venselaar , Dimos Baltas

This chapter deals with the first steps in understanding of brachytherapy physics in this rapidly evolving field of treatment with ionizing radiation.

The GEC ESTRO Handbook of Brachytherapy: Prostate Cancer (2nd edition - 2014)

Peter Hoskin , György Kovacs , Marco van Vulpen , Dimos Baltas

Brachytherapy is now established as an effective treatment for prostate cancer alongside radical prostatectomy and external beam radiotherapy.

The GEC ESTRO Handbook of Brachytherapy: Table of contents and Introduction (2nd edition - 2019)

Overview of the second edition of The GEC ESTRO Handbook of Brachytherapy

The GEC ESTRO Handbook of Brachytherapy: Rectal cancer (2nd edition - 2014)

Arthur Sun Myint , Chris D Lee , Jean Pierre Gerard

The concept of rectal cancer management has changed rapidly over the past few years. The standard of care in rectal cancer is still surgery. However, there is 

The GEC ESTRO Handbook of Brachytherapy: Urinary Bladder Cancer (2nd edition - 2015)

Bradley Pieters , Elzbieta van der Steen-Banasik , Erik Van Limbergen

Brachytherapy for bladder cancer was introduced several decades ago as a treatment to preserve bladder function. 

The GEC ESTRO Handbook of Brachytherapy: Radiobiology of LDR, HDR, PDR and VLDR Brachytherapy (2nd edition - 2015)

Erik Van Limbergen , Michael Joiner , Albert Van der Kogel , Wolfgang Dörr

Brachytherapy (BT) differs from external beam therapy (EBRT) in two main ways: the distribution of the absorbed dose and the time-dose patterns. 


The GEC ESTRO Handbook of Brachytherapy: Endometrial Cancer (2nd edition - 2016)

Peter Hoskin , Taran Paulsen Hellebust , Remi Nout , Ina Jϋrgenliemk-Schulz , Christine Haie-Meder , Erik Van Limbergen , Richard Pötter

Endometrial cancer presents in most women at an early stage confined to the uterus and initial treatment is by hysterectomy. Postoperative treatment is indicated for intermediate and high risk patients defined by age, stage, grade and the presence or absence of lymphovascular space invasion.

The GEC ESTRO Handbook of Brachytherapy: Bile Duct Cancer (2nd edition - 2017)

Janusz Skowronek

Biliary tract cancer is a rare disease. Surgical resection offers the best chance for long-term survival, but the results are not satisfactory and local relapses are frequent. The majority of patients present with locally advanced or metastatic disease, which is not amenable to surgical resection, resulting in poor survival [1]. Adjuvant or definitive radiotherapy (RT) with or without chemotherapy is therefore used in many centers worldwide for better local control and with the expectation that it will have a favorable effect on survival. However, the lack of appropriate prospective trials, as well as the small size of the published series and their retrospective nature, has produced insufficient evidence for the best treatment for these patients [1]. 

The GEC ESTRO Handbook of Brachytherapy: Skin cancer (2nd edition - 2017)

Jose Luis Guinot , Jose Pérez-Calatayud , Erik Van Limbergen

Non-melanoma skin cancer can be treated with brachytherapy as an alternative to surgery, with some advantages in dosimetry compared with external beam radiation due to the rapid fall-off of the dose.
